Kindly provide the reference for the following narration:

“Hypocrites delay in performing ‘Asr right until before sunset.”


Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration:

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says: “I heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say: That is how the hypocrite performs Salah, he delays until the sun is between the horns of Shaytan then he stands up and performs ‘Asr haphazardly barely remembering Allah”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 622)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
